Tunisia Vacation, Tours, Travel Packages & Experiences
Tunisia combines the old and new on a Tunisia vacation. There are resorts with excellent beaches and first class facilities, archaeological sites dating back to the Phoenicians and desert oases with roaming camels and nomadic tribes. The country has been influenced by the Romans, Arabs, Ottoman Turks and latterly, the French being a French colony for 75 years.
Tunis the capital is the ideal place to see the melting of the old and new. In part it is ancient with its maze of narrow streets incorporating plenty of souks and mosques but it also has its contemporary influences with modern tree-lined avenues.
Nearby is one of the greatest archaeological wonders, Carthage which has experienced many influences especially from the time of the Roman Empire with its amphitheatre and churches. Situated on a promontory, it has fabulous views of the Mediterranean and the picturesque promenade. There is also a walled citadel and close by is Sidi Bou Said offering sandy beaches and entertainment.
Hammamet, probably the best known resort, is referred to as “The Garden of Tunisia” with its natural beauty of lush palms, eucalyptus trees and sweet-smelling flora. Excellent resort style hotels abound. An added attraction on Tunisia tours is the old part with its narrow streets, medina and Kasbah. Another well known resort is Sousse, a very lively city once again combining resort facilities with medieval fortifications.
Going back to the traditional, a visit to Kairouanon on a Tunisa vacation is rewarding as it is bestowed with numerous mosques including the exquisite Great Mosque. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the oldest places of Muslim worship in the world. Sfax, another old city, has an outstanding harbour and medina.
Tozeur, an oasis, is also the centre of the date industry. Here you can find top quality workmanship in silver and copper. Finally you might consider a visit to Douz, an oasis in the desert with amazing sand dunes.
Tunisia has appeal for all tastes and interests. Book your Tunisia vacation today and experience it first hand.
